When at the Tourist Office / Workhouse in Portumna, the lady there mentioned that this was a forgotten treasure and to try to visit. She was dead right. It's modest, I imagine they operate on a paper-thin budget which people must appreciate, but they tell the story of the battle so well and we loved the models there. Definitely recommended.

This was a great place for a visit and well worth a stop. The lady working inside the center, we didn't catch her name, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. It was gray, windy and rainy day when we stopped in and we happened to be the first visitors of the day. She took the time to explain all about the... More

Shannon and I visited today after having meant to for quite some time. The exhibits and documentary film are really good. Many interesting artifacts and well done illustration and text panels. The young lady (Abby) who was single-handedly running the place was VERY good. Really well informed, enthusiastic, and just plain nice to us. The village and surrounds are a... More

The center does a wonderful job of explaining the Williamite War which led to British control of Ireland. The displays are clear and well done and the staff is fantastic - knowledgable. Helpful, and very friendly. This should be a stop on bus tours around Galway. It's off the beaten path but well worth the time. Highly recommend.

Very nice interpretive center. Not as grand as some but it gives you a real sense of what happened. Our 15 year old history buff loved it. It's a great stop on the way to Galway.

A friend and I visited the centre a couple of weeks ago, on what was apparently one of their busiest days, but it was so very quite. The centre is a bit off the beaten track and sorely in need of updating. Despite this the lady that was running it on the day was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, answering our... More

The Interpretive Centre was easy to find in the village of Aughrim. The exhibition covered all aspects of the battle in 1691. We really enjoyed the model of the battlefield and trying on the uniforms for photos. An excellent historian gave us a fantastic guide (including maps) and offered us a free tea/coffee. This guide pointed out a Historical Trail... More

I visited the centre quite by chance and found it a fascinating experience. The Battle of Aughrim Centre is run by one knowledgeable young lady who gave us a warm welcome and introduction and even made coffee. She runs the exhibition all summer and has great enthusiasm for the site of one of the most important battles in Ireland whose... More

I was lucky to visit the Battle Site as part of a group on the 15th March.Although the centre was closed for winter, a friend was able to arrange the lady(sorry I'm bad with names), in charge of the centre to do a tour of the battle field. It was excellent. She had grown up on a farm on the... More
